Fair votes and the referendum

I have written a piece for the local LibDem party blog about the high turnout for the EU referendum. It consists largely of a piece by Anthony Tuffin of STV Action. It was directed largely at Liberal Democrat members and friends, but Anthony has also pointed out there are Labour Party activists who want to introduce fair votes. He said:
STV Bulletin - Post Referendum PR election?

There is no need to convince the nationalists. Scotland has had STV in local government for many years now, and their parliamentary elections, while conducted on the same top-up list system as ours in Wales, are at least proportional, unlike those for the Senedd. STV is also Plaid Cymru policy, I believe, as it is for UKIP.
